Although a good DVD player, it is NOT a region-free (multi-zone) DVD player, despite technical descriptions posted on various seller internet sites (the official JVC website does not provide any useful technical information on which you can rely). I bought this player (XV N310B/312S) but figured out that it plays only DVDs with the following encoding: ALL, 1, 1-2, 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4-5-6. It does not play DVDs that do not include code "1". When I asked JVC about the discrepancies between technical information provided by seller websites and the player's real technical configuration, I received the following e-mail reply on January 6, 2005: "The information you have seen on the internet is incorrect. All DVD Players manufactured by JVC-America can only play Region 1 or discs that are Multi-Region discs that include "1"." THE SOLUTION: If you plan to buy a DVD player, first ask the manufacturer directly about technical details (do NOT rely on any other websites).

The first one I received, my cable man installer told me the video and audio output on the unit were defective. So I returned it, got a second one, and on the 2nd one, the audio worked fine, but the video output was defective. I am not trying for a 3rd time. If I decide a need a DVD player, I will spend the extra bucks to get a decent one. Don't waste your time and money on this product.

I bought this player because it can also play all kinds of cd: dvd, music, MP3, photo, etc. Unfortunately, it fares very poorly with music cd's.

Music cd's will skip or stutter towards the end of longer cd's. There is also a high pitched squeal coming from the player as it plays audio cd's. I tried returning it to have it repaired (did this TWICE), but they were unable to fix it. Each time I returned it, they took over a month to work on it, and then return it. By the time I had returned it twice, the rather short warrantee on parts&service expired.

Again, it is fine for dvd, and even for mp3 cds. This may also be a particular promlem with my player, but I assume not, since the jvc repair center was unable to fix it twice.

Based on the reviews here, I wasn't expecting much. I purchased this item on 8 June 2005 and have been waiting for it to crap out on me. My Sharp TV is dying out before this thing.

I haven't had a chance to try out all the different formats but it plays DVDs and Music CDs just fine.

I put this thing through hours of constant play and it's performed very well considering. When I say constant, I mean "I left it on Repeat Play all night and all day long" constant. Pretty good for the fifty bucks I paid for it.

As I recall, I also got very fast delivery too from Crutchfield(?) Electronics. I'll certainly check out JVC in the future.

I bought this player on 05/27/2005 and was very happy with it. Unfortunately, as of 04/29/2005, it has stopped working. I typically watch about 5~10 DVDs a month and I don't consider that very heavy use. NOT pleased.

I bought this item from Amazon.com. Picture image quality is bad. Return to Amazon.com for refund.

I use mine as the CD player in my bedroom stereo system because I prefer single-disc players. It sounds fine.
